New Features and Enhancements

  • Pendo data acquisition – Customers can now enable Pendo data acquisition to anonymously help Tenable prioritize feature enhancements and improve user experience in future releases. Enabling Pendo allows Tenable to collect anonymous usage statistics about customers’ SecurityCenter deployments. No customer identifying information will be collected. This usage information will help guide our roadmap and prioritize enhancements for the most frequently used features. The Pendo feature will be disabled by default and can be enabled in the SecurityCenter privacy settings.
  • Multi-Threaded C – Customers will now have performance and speed increases made possible with multi threading. This includes:
    • Up to a 50% reduction in time for dynamic asset preparation for larger data sets
    • Increased speed for Plugin Text searches and for complex searches on Plugin Output
    • Increased speed for Recast/Accept
  • Plugin Filtering – Customers now have the ability to filter plugins by family type, such as Backdoors or Brute Force attacks. This advanced scanning capability saves time and increases productivity by providing a comprehensive view of each plugin associated with a specific family type.
